Sampled at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Pours an unclear and golden beer with a weak white head. The aroma is malt and fruit. The flavor follows the nose with additional tropical fruit. The palate is sweetness. Overall a good beer.

Can:   Golden, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Soft floral and mealy nose.   Similar on the tongue.   Semi-sweet, smooth, pale breadiness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Not as musty or basement like as other Belgians, but still enjoyable for being very simple.

A - Pours a cloudy golden-yellow with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down very slowly leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of sweet malts, lemon and other citrus smells, poppy, honey, coriander, and some Belgian yeast. T - Starts off with a mix of sweet and lightly grainy malts with some lemon zest and other citrus flavor with a bit of coriander. Through the middle, some poppy comes through with some honey and Belgian yeast flavor. The finish is a mix of sweet malts, Belgian yeast, spice, and a bit of lemon peel with a hint of tartness. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet, and lightly dry and tart finish. D - Very drinkable. Nice BPA. Good overall balance with the poppy adding some nice flavor.

weihenweizen (4205) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Refrigerated can from JoePeesie brewed on date November 9, 2012 poured into a shaker. Pours hazy golden with small white head that dissapates quickly. Some small bubble lacing, medium body, medium carbonation, and light herbal aroma (poppy). Taste is herbal (poppy seeds), off bread taste, some grass, hint of pepper, and little taste in the finish. Tastes old, I don’t think I would like this even if it were fresh.

Draught @ [ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012 ] @ Spartas Lokaler, Faelledparken in Osterbro, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Unclear medium yellow colour with a small to average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, white head. Aroma is moderate malty, herbs, moderate yeasty, belgium yeast. Flavour is moderate sweet and light moderate bitter with a average to long duration, herbs - maybe it is the poppy seeds ! Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20120511]

Can. Pours gold with a white head. Light, flowery, and some grainy sweetness. Not much going on, but really not that bad.
